    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Juniper Networks in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview call through employee referral. It consisted of 4 1:1 interviews that went about 45-50 min each. Most of the questions are based on pseudo codes in C, Java. Last interview had a few behavioral questions. There was one puzzle too. Quite a tough interview to crack . It went pretty well though. But I got a call from a recruiter after a week that they have hired someone with more experience.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Juniper Networks in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initially had a phone call with staffing agency (3rd party) who described the opportunity, team, and expectations and asked about my background to see if there was a match. Thereafter, she shared my resume with the hiring manager, and the HR department then took over and arranged a phone interview with the hiring manager. There was strong interest due to my skill set, background in similar industry and products, and education. After clearing the initial interview by phone, I was invited for another phone interview with the hiring manager's manager, which took place about 1.5 weeks after. I was asked about my work history and explained how I felt I could add value to the team and company (knowledge of security products, product marketing - writing, presenting, etc.).After clearing that interview, I was invited for an in-person interview with both the hiring manager and 2 other team members. That interview took place about 1 week after. This lasted a total of about 40 minutes - about 30 minutes with 1 team member (other one was unable to meet) and 10 minutes with the hiring manager (as we had already conversed on phone in detail). I felt good about the in-person meetings. About 1 week later, I was made an offer through the HR rep who had arranged the in-person interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Juniper Networks in March 2011.

    The position was ASIC Verification. Initially had two phone screens. Then they called me for an onsite interview which consisted of 4 interviews and lunch with the ASIC manager, each lasting for 45 minutes. All four of them were technical. Work culture seemed very good.. there was a basketball court which was occupied at all times..My advice: just relax and be yourself and interview with a clear mind Get your C, C++ and digital logic basics strong. .prepare a list of questions you would wanna ask the interviewers. If you've put something in your resume, then be prepared to answer any questions on it..
